"You've seen something that approaches real world accuracy in sci-fi and police TV?"

Yes, you should check out the shows made by Jack Webb's Mark VII Limited, which includes Dragnet, Adam-12, and Emergency!. All three were particularly noteworthy for their real-world accuracy when it came to actual events. Indeed, the first two always included a True Events disclaimer ("The story you have just seen is true" for Dragnet, "incidents" for Adam-12).
